In the words of Chazal,  כל העולם כולו ניזון בשביל חנינא בני, וחנינא בני דיו בקב חרובין מערב שבת לערב שבת

Translated into today’s terms: The guys sitting in the warm boxes munching on hors d'oeuvres and fine beverages, are doing so in the zechus of the talmidei chachamim huddled in coats and scarves eating Reismans brownie bars and drinking water in the nosebleed section!

Some of those in the boxes are real “Zevulons” (the “adopt a kollel” box etc.) if they get equal schar does that mean that they share in the בשביל חנינה בני as well?

There seems to be two livestreams, not sure the exact difference.

Anyone know if there will be plain hot water? Thinking of bringing some tradition soups.

Is a thermos with hot water ok?

How about the language of the country we live in. Is that really too much to ask?
If the speeches are meant to inspire and a make a kiddush hashem, why exclude a large amount of people. Unless of course, giving a speech in a German based dialect is more important than making a kiddush hashem.

Aren't those 2 mutually exclusive?

You are aware the Yiddish is just a derivative of high middle German right? So "yeshivish" English speak has the same significance. If the siyum were in Hebrew, you'd have a point.

If you bring headphones, you will be able to listen to English or Spanish translations. Relax.

Rav Aharon Kotler said that people (in his days) should speak Yiddish for three reason. (Some wouldn't apply today)

1- To be a Havdalah from the Amim

2- So that Jews around the world can communicate with each other even if their native languages vary. (not applicable today)

3- It has become a holy language because Torah was learned in Yiddish for hundreds of years.

Anyone verify whether parking in non-Agudah sections of the mall is free?

I assume event pricing will be in effect.

So why not Hebrew? All those reasons should apply.
